Day #6: Be Not Scared


Okay, I’m jumping the gun a little early on this, but it’s necessary to make this poem work, plus I’ll be busy tomorrow, so … here’s day six, written and posted on day five.

mlk dream

Forty five years ago yesterday

A great man passed away

He spoke of the power of love

And the power of the man above

His beliefs should have kept fear at bay

His words should have killed hatred in a day

In a moment those thoughts of peace and love

Disappeared not destroyed by a bullet, but on the wings of a dove

For his death we will most likely continue to pay

Somewhere, some day maybe we’ll live up to what he had to say

      Thank you for enjoying my blog. Poetry isn’t what I normally do. So this week hasn’t been a typical week for me. Although, in some respects, the poems are just a different form of expressing what I typically express. I’ve responded to your award on my blog. Hopefully, I can continue keeping you entertained in the weeks and months ahead. 🙂

        Of course you will keep me entertained I like all of your writings not just the poetry. And with a blog named King Midget’s Ramblings what else could there be but entertainment! 🙂
